UPS Extends Team TAISAN Sponsorship
Press Release

Handles International Transportation for Super GT and Other Races

UPS Japan announced that it has renewed its one-year sponsorship agreement with the Team TAISAN car racing team. As team sponsor, UPS will continue to support the transportation of Team TAISAN's racing car parts and equipment. The UPS logo will also be featured on Team TAISAN's racing cars and racing suits.

This will mark the third year for this sponsorship. With the new Porsche 911GT3R the team introduced for this year's series, Team TAISAN has been showing a great performance since the first round. The team secured the top position in the series ranking after the latest third round in Sepang, Malaysia.

UPS and Team TAISAN have also collaborated in philanthropic activities such as inviting children from a group foster home to a Super GT race, and the Team TAISAN drivers visiting the foster home with race cars.

UPS Japan's president Masato Umeno said, "We are pleased to be able to extend our sponsorship for Team TAISAN. We will continue to support the team with our global network and reliable services."
